Originally from Africa, the Guinea Fowl is now found all over the world. Hamish has crafted his Guinea Fowl sculptures in a series of characteristic poses, in both bronze and silver. Its featherless head and distinctive crest, coupled with its long legs, make the bird a slightly comical figure and grouped together, these game bird sculptures have an endearing charm.
Guinea Fowl Eating, Looking Up, Walking, Running and Bolt are all available as individual bronze sculptures in a limited edition of 25.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
I often stumble across guinea fowl in the African bush. They are such characters and are always fun to observe. I sculpted these in a group, as they are when they are going about their daily business.
